SUCCESSFULLY RAISING TRIPLETS TAKES GOD’S BLESSING
Triplets Antonio, Jacobe, and Armalindo are now 8 years old and in the 3rd grade. They are PROOF that with lots of prayer, raising 3 tiny babies weighing only 1.8kgs(3.9 lbs,) can grow into healthy children.

Eight years ago the Aunt and Grandmother came to us for milk formula, but they lived too far away to fetch milk weekly. We placed the 5 of them in one of our improved mud huts (tin roof, mud brick walls, and cement floor with outdoor kitchen and bathroom.) With many prayers and our help, the 3 boys overcame any illness that attacked their little bodies. Once a year old, they were thriving, and we felt they had a great future.
The Aunt left them to get married when the boys were 3, so it was only Grandmother Arminda now caring for them. Once the boys were 5, the Grandmother decided it was time they moved into the village with her niece. The niece would care for them once their very ancient Grandmother has finished her race. Grandmother Arminda is one tough woman. She still comes every Thursday to fetch food for herself and the 3 boys. God has given her the grace to live a long life, and to see her grandsons growing into young men.
We use the above story of these triplets as an encouragement to those who come to us with multiple birth babies. Our baby formula program encounters many sets of twins each year, so having 3 sets of triplets still has us amazed.
THANK YOU for your prayers and love gifts to help the 3 sets of triplets now in our program. One infant went to heaven 2 weeks ago due to lung complications, but the remaining 8 babies are eating and gaining weight.
YOUR LOVE GIFTS AND PRAYERS AT WORK!
I LOVE JESUS, JESUS LOVES ME

HELPING ORPHANS IN THE BUSH
Our BBC motorbike team is not functioning right now due to current health restrictions against large group meetings. But the orphans in the bush still need to eat, so Carlitos and Daniel, BBC leaders, make a trip every 2 weeks taking food to 3 grannies raising 9 orphans living an hour by motorbike from our base.

These 2 youth Pastors load 2 motorbikes with corn flour, dried beans, salt, and soap for these families. They spend a few minutes ministering to the children, and talking to the local village Pastor before returning on a rough dirt road that brings them back to our mission station.

YOUR LOVE GIFTS AT WORK, even in the midst of difficult times.
June corn and beans are now in our barn, and all is well thanks to many praying for us to receive what we needed for our children.
THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS PROGRAM POSSIBLE.
